Fewer Blacks getting married
The percentage of Blacks 25 and older who have never been married was 36 percent in 2012, up from 9 percent in 1960, Pew Research reported. The study, “Record Share of Americans Have Never Married,” found that 36 percent of Black men and 35 percent of Black women have never married. In 1960, 12 percent of Black men never married compared to 9 percent of Black women who never married. For those ages 25 to 34, there were 92 never-married men for every 100 never-married women in 2012, Pew found.
